“The earth has music for those who listen.” —William Shakespeare

I move swiftly,


so not even the birds can hear me,

damp leaves cold

beneath the bare skin of my feet.

The farther I go,

the more my thoughts dissipate like mist.

The wind rushes past me,

teasing and tugging

my hair into terrible shapes.

If I was anyone,

I might feel the cold,

but Earth's breath feels warm in my ear

as I listen to her secrets.
